Our Digital Offset technology gives us beautiful print results that are superior to other digital printing technologies like laser and inkjet.
The ink used in Digital Offset is semi-opaque, which allows for bright and vibrant colours. This is especially noticeable on absorbent papers like uncoated wine materials.
We also have the capability to print in up to seven colours, adding orange, green and purple to the traditional cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK) plus white. This widens the colour gamut normally achievable through traditional CMYK digital print.
We also have the option for special colours for accurate brand colour matching. We have an extensive collection of materials that we can digitally print including coated and uncoated paper, clear and white film, metallic paper and film, thermal paper and specialty stocks.
Digital printing is ideal for short runs, as no printing plates are required. This reduces preparation costs and provides more flexibility, especially in the case of frequent design changes.
Digital is also ideal for concept mock-ups, test marketing, and promotions.
Digital also offers the ability to create personalised campaigns. There are two main forms of personalisation:
1. Ability to print variable components within a label design either randomly or via a database, such as images, colours, numbers, text, and barcodes
2. HP Mosaic is a software program that provides the opportunity to create countless individual designs where no two designs are alike
We are excited to have recently invested in extending the embellishments we can offer for digitally printed labels. The embellishments now available include:
Digital Offset presses use a light sensitive plate that attracts ink. Unlike conventional offset printing that uses a fixed plate that cannot change, Digital Offset uses a Photo Imaging Plate (PIP). This is a light sensitive plate that can be re-imaged with different information on every revolution of the printing cylinder. The ink is only attracted to the charged areas on the PIP, leaving the previously uncharged areas free of ink.
The PIP then transfers the attracted ink to a rubber blanket, which then transfers (offsets) the ink to the substrate.
The printed web is then transferred to a traditional Flexographic press for the labels to be coated, die cut and embellished giving the labels the same environmental resistance as traditional Flexographic printed labels.
Our experienced sales team have extensive expertise in all things labels. We would be pleased to meet with you to discuss your labelling requirements, share our knowledge and develop a solution specifically for you..
